New Equipment, Services Help milliCare Ramp Up for Growth in 2019
Evolution leads to new offerings that allow milliCare franchise owners to bid and compete more effectively, boosting revenue
Because they can clean carpets and hard flooring, new milliCare commercial floor cleaning franchise owners benefit right out of the gate. More options mean more bidding opportunities and more business.
That’s only part of the benefit of owning a milliCare franchise, however. Add to that a constant upgrading of equipment to make it lighter and more energy-efficient, as well as new cleaning materials and services that boost business, and it’s easy to see why the brand is poised for a solid 2019 and beyond.
Training covers all the bases
“We teach both systems at the outset, so a new owner learns them both,” explains Brian Morgan, Director of Operations. “And as we introduce new systems and products, we engage in additional training so that current franchise owners are able to access those right away and begin offering the additional benefits to their clients.”
Because the commercial floor cleaning franchise industry is a fast-moving one when it comes to R&D, that training can take place either in milliCare’s corporate offices or at franchise locations, making it even more convenient for owners to tap into the newest and latest products and services.
New flooring styles not a problem
A key focus for milliCare is to watch trends in the industry, which can drive innovation as well. For instance, even as new types of cleaning solutions and equipment are being created and tested, they can be adapted to new types of flooring and thus be of immediate benefit.
“We will always have the most advanced lines, so when there is a new type of floor, we can adapt what we have or create new lines,” Morgan says. “The end goal is to make sure that every milliCare commercial floor cleaning franchise can offer a client specific service for every square foot of their building. Carpet is dropping as a total share of flooring, while other types of flooring are going up. We are making sure that milliCare is ready, or even ahead of, what’s out there today and tomorrow.”
